30 meter high earth mound at White lake was built by the giants?

Thirty meters cyclopean constructions of earthworks in the city of Belozersk of the Vologda region of the imagination of people still

If the Arab Ambassador arrived in the capital of Bulgaria a bit earlier, he could see the giant was still alive, but shortly before the visit of Ibn Fadlan, the man-giant had to kill because of his evil and violent temper. Held him on the outskirts of the city chained to a tree, fed meat wild birds and animals that he with appetite ate straight raw. Curious I went to watch the giant not only from the capital of Bulgaria, but even from remote villages of this country, and for a long time the sight was one of the main entertainments of the people. However, after the children were fainting from the terrible antics of a giant, and pregnant women were having miscarriages from his terrible roar, the giant Tsar was killed.

Most importantly — Ahmed Ibn Fadlan says in his memoirs that the giant was brought to Bulgaria from the far North, from the country of the PISG, where many fur-bearing animals, forests and lakes. Modern sources consider it “the land of the PISG” the area of White lake and its environs, where in ancient times lived the people of the PISG, or the entire (current Veps). What giants lived a thousand years ago within the borders of the Vologda region? How the message is Ibn Fadlan is true?

About the size of a giant Arab diplomat says that his head was as the barrel and the rib— like rods the leaves of palm trees. By this feature, of course, difficult to judge the true form of a humanoid giant. Maybe Ibn Fadlan actually saw the so-called “Bigfoot”, rumors which occasionally circulated in the press? Who knows, maybe, and on the shores of White lake in ancient times there lived these giant beings of unknown nature. What if ordinary people, endowed with much greater intelligence, were able somehow to tame these forest giants? If not for their remarkable strength and has been used for various construction and excavation works in the ancient cities? Then the legend about the construction of the Belozersk the shaft by the hands of giants looks more realistic — like the faint reflection of a half-forgotten historical facts.
